Day 1 - Delhi To Ranikhet With 3 days leave in hand, I have been thinking of a place not far from Delhi and while reading about the various places online, I came across the name of a small town called Kausani. Set at an altitude of over 6075 ft (1890 mt) above sea level, the hill resort of Kausani is surrounded by snow-capped mountains and imagination-stirring scenic beauty, which has earned it the moniker the 'Switzerland of India'. Besides being the birthplace of the famous poet Sumitra Nandan Pant, the place is also visited by Mahatma Gandhi who was so enamored of its dazzling natural beauty. Originally known as Valna, the mesmerizing hill resort of Kausani offers the ultimate vacation creating the romantic environment. I decided to visit this place and joining me once again was my close friend Shoaib.We started at 5am towards the town of Rampur.
